I've looked thought the other threads and have not found the answer to a question.

Is the Portsmouth Yardstick D-PN of 83.3 for a Getaway for a boat with the wings?

Portsmouth 83.3 ~ PHRF 170

83.3 standard boat D-PN
x 0.981 (for adding trapeze)
x 0.960 (for adding spinnaker)
78.4 modified boat D-PN ~ PHRF 140

If 83.3 does not include the wings, the PY adjustment for added beam is 0.995

x 0.995 for added beam (wings)
78.0 ~ PHRF 138

Hobie 16 is a PY secondary yardstick boat at 76 with double trap and no spinnaker. D-PN is 76 ~ 126 PHRF

I'm happy to sail at either 138 or 140 ... just want to be able to defend the number. We paced (and beat) a 44 foot mono downwind yesterday ... they rate 53 ... there will be screaming soon ...

BTW ... there is no sail number convention for Getaways that I can find. I used the serial number so 5065 is on the sail.


Sail More. Tinker Less. Enjoy a Hobie Day.

If you want to remain friends, have fun rounding the course and don't ask to be scored.
Or, race handicap with their dinghy fleet.
